Abstract

Four cubane-like CU4I4 units are assembled around an iodine atom to form the giant, mixed-valent CuIICuI 15I17 cluster. The CuIICuI 15I17 cluster and a bipyrazole linker form a 3D open framework with paramagnetic and thermochromic properties. This paper also touches on the resemblance of this cluster to the self-similar object of a Sierpinski tetrahedron. © 2008 American Chemical Society.
